Memories in the boxes of my mind

Published by on February 11, 2018

The picture you see here is of me. It has always been my most favorite picture of myself. Each time I came across it, though, I’d get a strange warmth around my heart and I always smiled. I say it was a strange warmth because I never felt warm when I saw pictures with me in […]

Breaking Solitary

Breaking solitary is not easy for a writer. As writers, we need to be alone. I thrive on living in my head. Inventing worlds known only to me. Please do not interrupt when my characters are speaking, thinking, acting, planning, and plotting, thank you very much. Sometimes, though, I need to step outside of myself […]

Beware the Siren Call of the Quickie

Quickies have their place, and they can be a-okay, too. Of course by their very nature, quickies usually leave somebody hanging. In the bedroom, well that’s between you and your mate. But in business, oh…that’s not good even once. Since 1992 I’ve been writing for businesses. With the advent of MailChimp and Constant Contact and […]

Watched Pots Never Boil

They say a watched pot never boils. They are right. In a hurry to cook spaghetti noodles, I’ve watched plenty of them and they never boil until you turn away. For me, as a writer, that pot is whatever book I’m working on. If I sit in front of the screen and I try to […]

Marston Morse was a mathematician who, if memory serves – and most simply at that — somehow defined the basis for string theory. In describing his journey to that discovery, he also happened upon a definition of male/female relationships, namely — The roads by which we arrive at our insights seem to me as worthy […]

Gordon Unplugged: The Best Therapy

There is nothing like riding down the road with the radio turned up to traffic-annoying levels while singing along to a song and beating in time on the steering wheel. I discovered this when I was driving away from Lucinda’s house after she turned down my offer of marriage. Actually, I cried for a couple […]

My regular readers know I’m working on a novel series branded as Dance Floor Wars, and that I’m pushing Durden Kell as the John Le Carré of Love. My regular readers also know I’m writing songs to go with those books and the movies that will follow. It’s called planning for Multiple Streams of Income. […]

The heat is on: Media elitist whines

More Americans than ever before distrust the mainstream media. Newspaper and magazine circulations? Down. News and Gotcha shows’ viewership? Down. Twitter usage? Massive growth until they started manipulating what they approved of. Now down. Nobody’s surprised at this except for the 6% of the population who still believe everything the media writes as gospel truth, the media […]

[This is about a real-life man from the blog of Gordon Wesley Asbury, a fictional character in the Dance Floor Wars novels.]   Upon contemplating suicide early in his adulthood, Buckminster Fuller had a vision.

One of the most spectacular dances in the history of film,  Gene Kelly’s choreography was of such a standard that a special Oscar was created that year in recognition of his achievement. But what has this dance got to with editing words? Simply this: What you see on the screen was not the original dance they filmed. […]
